Columbia project near completion in Rossland

By the end of this week, we should have nearly complete sidewalks: Concrete, pavers and softscaping should be mostly complete.

  • Oct. 25, 2012 7:00 a.m.

Due to the beautiful early snowfall in Rossland, the downtown grand re-opening party will unfortunately have to be rescheduled from Oct. 27 to Nov. 3.

By the end of this week, we should have nearly complete sidewalks: Concrete, pavers and softscaping should be mostly complete.  Harry Lefevre has progressed quite a bit in the past week and work will continue until completion, expected by the end of this week or early next week.

Crews will be working on the cenotaph after the sidewalks are complete.

Washington St is nearly finished and will be open intermittently.

The beautiful new banners for the light posts are in and will soon be hung.

The banners feature local artists’ work.  Bus stops, the items we have kept saying were going up last, will likely be going up next week!

Feel free to visit Mayor Granstrom Mondays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at City Hall.

To see graphics portraying the end-goal of this construction project, please take a look at the video display in the window of Rossland Hardware, or watch them on the City of Rossland website here.

Please contact us at columbiaproject@rossland.ca with your comments, concerns, ideas, or questions.

The telephone number for technical questions and concerns is 250-362-2328.
